Feds digging into Sanit snow 'conspiracy' (Mail fraud, wire fraud, manslaughter for union thugs?)
NY Post ^ | 1/5/11 | JOSH MARGOLIN

Posted on 01/05/2011 4:34:17 AM PST by jimbo123

The feds have launched a criminal probe into allegations — first reported by The Post — that city sanitation workers conspired to paralyze the Big Apple during last week’s blizzard with a potentially deadly job slowdown, authorities confirmed yesterday.

-snip-

The Brooklyn and Queens district attorneys yesterday confirmed that they, too, are investigating the scandal.

What would move Holder to ask for more than slaps on the wrist to these party-obedient drones?

The babies and senior citizens who died in the sanitation union job action were “people of color”. While the Queens and Brooklyn DA’s have starting their investigations, where is Reverend Al, Jessie Jackson and Barack The Kenyan on this tragedy? Why aren’t they denouncing the mostly-white sanitation union and demanding justice?

The unions have been getting too uppity and need their nose swatted by their owners.

The workers are ‘insulted’ that we would believe they didn’t do their job.

As for the investigation...........the results will be the same as with good ole Sinater Dodd.

No problem at all. Not guilty.

GOOD!

This is exactly what I suggested after the NY Post broke the story.
Now the US Attorneys for the other NYC Borroughs better get on board pdq.

an aside: I'd revise that 'Manslaughter' to Felony Murder since the deaths were the result on an ongoing criminal conspiracy - a Felony.

They’ll get prosecuted right after Holder is finished going after the Black Panthers.

All for show, not a damn thing will happen to anyone, with the exception of maybe public embarrassment.

I have no faith in the city, state or DOJ to do anything about this.

The House Pubbies need to hold hearings and take testimony. Under oath.

"They’ll get prosecuted right after Holder is finished going after the Black Panthers."

That was my first thought too...just like O.J. is still looking for the real killer.

I'm no lawyer, but I'd bet RICO'd apply here.

But my bet is the feds are involved to do damage contol, not investigate or prosecute.

Wasn’t it just two or three years ago that the Mississippi flooded and a female governor (don’t remember her name) of one of those states received a call from Washington DC telling her to hold off calling out the National Guard?

Your bet is probably a good one.

As for my question, I know that the whole idea of a Constitution is moot these days, but wouldn't there have to be some "interstate commerce" involved to justify RICO? (I suppose someone could say that the trucks they use were built out of state, but that is why I keep pointing to Hamilton's words in Federalist No. 28. It's really bad, and it's going to get worse until some use their courage and despair as Hamilton suggested.)

IF a real investigation is done (cough-cough) it will show New Yorkers who’s really running their city and it’s not the mayor.

The left never cared about babies(abortion) or senior citizens(death Panels),regardless of skin color, who died in the sanitation union job action.

These two groups are just ‘collateral damage’ in the lefts long march toward Marxism and maintaining power.

Here's the actual law....

TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 96 CHAPTER 96—RACKETEER INFLUENCED AND CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS

From what I read, it works for me :)

I'm not going to read that BS. There is NO justification for making fraud and malfeasance in connection with snow removal in NYC a Federal issue. Congress can and does pass these laws which centralize power in the Federal Government, but that doesn't mean that thinking citizens cannot mourn the passing of their country.

For the Feds to be jumping in so early without any clearly identifiably federal law being broken seems to be just one more case of an over reaching fedzilla encroachment into our lives.

However, as a NYS resident (Western NY thank God), the communists in this state will see no problem with the feds stepping in.

I think you are remembering it backwards or perhaps you were told wrong. During Katrina, Governor Kathleen Blanco of Louisiana, refused to request Federal aid or to ask that a national emergency be declared, a necessary step for the Fed to get involved including calling out the National Guard, until she and her cronies could hash out a deal that they, not the Fed, would control the money. This caused a delay of several days which they and the media blamed on Bush.

The government is investigating government unions using unionized government employees whose contributions hire and elect government employees.

Social Justice!!!

I’ve had time to refresh my memory now by poking around the internet. The incident that I’m referring to happened after Katrina. The gist is that in 2007,parts of Kansas had been hit hard by tornadoes and Governor Kathleen Sebelus she she couldn’t call out the Guard to help because President Bush had them overseas fighting in Iraq. Senator Brownback told the media that the Kansas National Guard commander said that “they had all the resources needed to respond”.

Then talk radio Quinn and Rose (Warroom) aired that they had a trusted source who told them that DNC Chairman Howard Dean had called Governor Sebelius and instructed her not to request federal assistance in recovery, and to lie about the federal response to date.

I remember that this caused a big stink at the time, but haven’t seen what the outcome was...other than President Obama naming Governor Sebelius Secretary of Health and Human Services.
